Looking after your skin during the autumn months.
Our skin is greatly effected by the weather and temperature change at this time of the year, it tends to become a lot drier compared to the warmer months. It is important we look after and treat our skin well, everyone’s skin is very different whether it be oily, dry, dehydrated or mature, buying the correct products for your skin type is key, this way you will get the best results from the products you’re spending precious money on.
As the temperature drops our skin becomes more dehydrated, so we need to ensure we’re keeping our skin hydrated, inside and out, by using products like toners and serums as well as drinking the recommended amount of water each day, drinking plenty of water has lots of other benefits as well as having lovely looking skin.
No matter what skin type you have you should always include a gentle exfoliator that’s used once or twice a week, which will remove dead skin, using a gentle exfoliator in circular motions will help to remove the appearance of dull, fatigued, tired looking skin and you’ll be left with healthy glowing skin.
Adding a face mask to your weekly routine is a nice way to treat your skin while having an excuse to have a sit down and catch up on your favourite tv series but also a fun way to spend the evening with family or friends. Our caci hydro mask is a gel sheet mask that contains hyaluronic acid which is super hydrating, so it’s a great time of the year to pop in and purchase one for a cosy night in, better still why not treat yourself to the full hydro mask treatment in the salon.
Heading on into the autumnal months of the year our skin becomes flaky and dehydrated due to the use of central heating in our homes, the harsh change in temperature of entering and returning from the outdoors, so it’s a good idea to swap out your moisturiser for a heavier one to keep your skin feeling supple.
Although it’s cold out and the sun isn’t as strong, that doesn’t mean you can ditch your spf. Your skin may not burn with the sun hiding behind the clouds, however it is still very important to use a good spf as it will protect your skin against the suns ageing factors.
